The date January 26 was chosen for the fundamental law to take effect because it commemorates Purna Swaraj Day. In 1930 the Indian National Congress on January 26 issued a bold resolution declaring complete freedom from the British Raj.
Celebrations take place all across the country and abroad, with the attraction being the Grand Parade in the national capital city of Delhi. The Parade runs along Rajpath near the Rashtrapati Bhawan (President’s House). The celebration of the values expressed in it is considered a requisite part of building national pride.
